Denise Brown, sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, the murdered ex-wife of O.J. Simpson, is very upset over publication of the O.J. Simpson book "If I Did It," which has been renamed as "Confessions of the Killer" by the Goldman's whose son was also murdered. The Goldman's were awarded rights to the book. The Goldman family had won a $38 million wrongful death suit against O. J. Simpson that he’s refused to pay. Now, Denise Brown is calling the Goldman family hypocrites, because when they first found out that O. J. had written a book and planned on selling it, they called him “disgusting and despicable” for writing a book like that to sell.

Denise is now asking for the boycott of the book, because she feels her murdered sister's two children "will have to be subjected to this step by step manual on how their mother and her friend Ron were murdered."

1. Do you feel the Goldman's are money hungry and want to profit financially from the murder of their son, Ron Goldman, by publishing this book? Why?

2. If you were in the Goldman’s place, what would you do?

3. Do you agree with Denise Brown? Why?

4. Are you going to buy "Confessions of the Killer?"

This is how I feel about the whole thing:

1. I don’t know the Goldman’s at all, so I can’t tell if they are money hungry or not.

2. If I were in the Goldman’s shoes, I don’t believe I would have the book published, but if I did, I would donate all the profits to a well worth cause, and not receive one penny of it for myself, because if I did, then I would feel it was blood money.
3. I can understand her feelings on this, but I don’t believe the book should be banned. I just don’t like being told what to read and what not to.

4. Since O. J. Simpson will be eating nothing but crow, I most definitely will buy the book.

1. While I think it may be their attempt to recoup any money that OJ won't pay them, as well as a possible political move to thumb their nose at OJ for the "hah! we'll be profiting from your book!" it sure seems like they're in it for the money. And apparently, to them, money replaces the life of their son. Hope they get what they think he was worth. Pure speculation, of course. I don't know the Goldmans, either, so I can only guess at their motivation. It's a confusing move on their part to publish the book.

2. Kill OJ. Just in case.

3. I don't agree with Denise Brown. I find boycott pleas to be emotionally motivated outbursts by poeple with an agenda or at least a motivation for drama. It's classic pyschology to want to be in, or form an "in-group" to feel comfortable about your insecurity. A boycott is nothing more than that. "I hate OJ so you should too!" Pardon my french, but, fuck off, Denise.

4. While I'm curious to see the infamous penned "If I did it" from our slippery murderer, I'm not inclined to pay for it anytime soon. When it's finally out in mass-market paperback in a couple years, I don't have a problem shelling out the 7 or 8 bucks it's likely to cost, but I'm not going to trample anyone to get a copy. When it's cheap, and I'm looking for something to read, I'll pick it up. It's not about who gets paid for it. If the Goldmans want to chalk up my purchase as another $ucce$$ in their eyes, hurray for them. By the time it's mass-market paperback, it'll probably already be readable on the internet for free.

2. Nah! O.J. isn't going to get away from it in the other world, because he's going straight to hell!

3. I excuse your French, and I totally agree with you!

4. I've pre-ordered it already. When I get it, and read it, I'll share some of the high points in the book.

You can blame Mark Furhman for O. J. Simpson going free. He's the one who used the bloodied glove to set him up. I see red whenever I see him on Fox News!!

I care for all involved, but if the Goldman's keep the money from the sale of that book, then I'll dislike them forever.

"For whom the bell tolls." Is that the inspiration for the bells?

1. I don't know them either, but my initital guess is that they're just keeping O.J. from profiting off the death. If it's anything more than that, then I feel sorry for them.

2. I would do the samething. I would allow it to be published so that people see what kind of beast O.J. is. And with the money, I would create the Nicole Brown Foundation and have it benefit the people of this world.

3. She can demand a boycott all she wants, but people are going to buy the book anyways. So, by making sure O.J. doesn't profit off the book is a better choice, and the money can be used to honor her like I mentioned above -- which serves a higher cause. It turns a bad thing into a good thing so to speak. So if I was her, then that's what I would demand, even though I would most likely be pissed off my entire life because justice was never served. So, my sympathy goes out to Denise.

4. Nah... I have a list of books I'm looking to buy, and this would never make that list.

I took that picture of the bells at an old church I went to recently. "For Whom the Bell Tolls"...I really like that, and will start calling it just that. Thanks! :o)

1. Sometimes greed can make some people do things which are blasphomous. Let's hope the Goldman's are that type of people.

2. I wonder if Denise Brown would have been as adamant about the sale of the book, if she had been awarded rights to the book. Just wondering...

4. I want that book more than anything in the world, and went ahead and pre-ordered it yesterday with Amazon. They still don't have it, but will send it to me, just as soon as they get them.

I agree with your answers, except the last one... I probably won't buy the book, because I'm not that interested... :P

I already bought the book at Amazon. Can hardly wait to get it! I want to read first hand, what makes O.J. tick!
Aug. 30th, 2007 12:46 pm (UTC)
1. Nah. I think they are trying to make a statement

2. I would have killed O.J.

3. No.

4. No.

1. If they keep the money, they sure are; that money means more than the memory of their son.

If they give the proceeds to a worthy cause, I'll eat my words.

2. The only thing you would have accomplished would have been to spend the rest of your life in prison. O.J. Simpson isn't worth that!

3. Aren't you curious what's in the mind of a killer??! I do, and I pre-ordered the book yesterday at Amazon.

I don't know the Goldmans or Denise Brown either. So I cannot speak to their motives/desires.

I have no desire to purchase nor read this book.
Aug. 31st, 2007 12:24 am (UTC)
Nobody wants to read the book except me!! :o(

1. Dunno. But circumstantially, doesn't look good. Extra not good if they keep the cash.

2. Make sure the book never saw the light of day for 75 years in a vault.

3. Yes, boycott it. Don't buy it, don't read it.

Because doing so serves no purpose except wallowing in the gruesome slaughter for two real-life people for vicarious thrills and entertainment, and that stains the soul.

She's 100% correct about the children as well. Because at some point, some where, they're going to run across the detailed text of their mothers' slaughter. It'll make it's way online and they'll be confronted with it. And that doesn't need to happen. This book adds nothing to the realm of public knowledge but Grand Gguignol shock, except the blood and slaughter are real people instead of actors.

I'm a big fan of The Devil's Rejects because Rob Zombie is a masterful filmmaker, does great DVD commentary, and the acting is superb. But I'd feel a whole lot different if it were based on real events.

Let it be published 75 years from now under Creative Commons License. Let history deal with it.

Not telling you MAY read. I'm telling you what you SHOULD NOT read. Your call.

4. I would feel emotionally tainted picking it up and cracking the cover, much less paying money for it.

1. If they end up keeping the cash instead of giving it away to a good humanitarian cause, then I'll feel they're worse than the monster that killed their son.

3. Knowing curiosity, there's no way I could have kept from reading the book.

4. I've already bought it at Amazon. They still don't have it, but just as soon as it comes in, they'll send it to me.

I feel it's always best to see what lurks behind the mind of a vicious killer. I wish Jeffrey Dahmer's life had been protected while behind bars, so he could have been scientifically studied, as to why he committed such barbaric killings.
